What's the mileage on the truck? More then likely it's shot and i would just plan to put a new clutch kit in. Might be a little bit of a pain on the ground but very doable. Most clutch kits come with installation instructions just pay close attention to them and do not skip any steps whatsoever. If you are in tucson, az i could throw it in for ya for a nominale fee so make the trip down i will take care of ya. Also make sure the clutch isn't slipping from oil leaks from the motor, pressure plates and oil are not friends. Hope this helps you a little bit.

You'll need a pilot bearing puller. Not sure if you can rent them from autozone or not.

I will definitely have the flywheel machined. Any pros or cons to Lightening my flywheel as well? Truck is on 31's, and just has Cai, and a header.

I would replace it, but they are expensive. It may be worth machining. Find a local racing shop and ask them.
Machining takes off thousandths of an inch. It will make it slightly more subject to getting hot faster, just like machining rotors. It's really up to you. If you plan on keeping it for a long time, replace it.

Just caught the larger tire issue. Replace the flywheel and go with the stronger clutch while you're in there.

Umm hey man i don't know if you have ever seen a factory toyota flywheel and how thick they are but even after machining them and taking off 1 thousandth it isn't enough to heat the flywheel up so that it warps, plus they get hot even when they are factory thickness. I only replace flywheels when they have been turned numerous times or some meathead leaves it in the elements and it rusts leaving the surface with pitting. If this is your 1st or 2nd clutch replacment your fine to get it turned and move on with life. If it's a stock motor and a DD i would just buy an exedy stock replacment no need for over kill unless you like it, which i have run a stage2 from LC and loved it but it's your preference. Also do not lighten your flywheel if you love good gas mileage as a super light flywheel like say LC's 9 lb. aluminum will kill mileage because it is like a constant engine break. When you let off the gas it will automatically start slowing down because there is not enough weight to keep the inertia going hence forth you will have to stay on the gas to keep a constant speed. Hope this helps out with where you wanna go with the truck.

Awesome info. Thanks guys. I'll go with a heavier duty clutch, and depending on the flywheel condition, either replace it or turn it. I love my gas milrage so ill steer clear of the lightening flywheel. I'm confide-t that i have the skills to replace the cluth myself.
